An investigation is underway after a suspect, identified by the state medical examiner as Bruce Coval Meneley, was shot and killed by Seattle Police during an attempted arrest at the DoubleTree Suites Hilton Hotel in Southcenter.

The shooting was reported around 3 p.m. on April 17 at the DoubleTree on Southcenter Parkway.

Seattle Police responded to the hotel to arrest a 67-year-old man who was being investigated by the state's Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce. According to Police Chief Adrian Diaz, the suspect believed he was meeting up with two girls ages 7 and 11.

Newly-released bodycam video shows three police officers emerge from a room and speak to the suspect, who appears to immediately pull out a gun. The second the gun is visible, a gunshot can be heard.

A police officer is heard yelling, "Gun!"

Within seconds, the officers begin firing into the suspect, who falls to the ground. It is unclear how many shots are fired, but one of the officers is seen loading another magazine into his firearm.

One officer was grazed by a bullet in the leg. Their injuries were minor and they were not taken to the hospital.

No one else was injured.

The shooting is being investigated by the Force Investigation Team (FIT), per protocol.

This is a developing story.
